After completing his legal studies at the University of Oxford and Harvard Law School, Martin joined DLA Piper as a trainee in 2014 and is now working as an associate in the EU, Competition and Trade Wteam in the firm's London office. He advises on a broad range of competition law issues across various different sectors.
In relation to state aid, Martin has advised both aid recipients and public authorities. Recently, he has advised a local council on a proposed infrastructure investment that involved consideration of complex issues concerning the GBER, SGEI and the proposed draft GBER on port infrastructure. He has also provided advice on the state aid notification process and the procedures involved in appealing state aid decisions.
Aside from state aid, Martin has been involved with a variety of competition law matters ranging from merger control (both at EU and UK level), cartel investigations (including a leniency application to the CMA), abuse of dominance and designing selective distribution systems.
